CAM or Not?

January 28, 2013 - Sylvia Heldreth
If a licensed Community Association Manager helped an association by supervising the lien filing process on a delinquent owner, he or she would be engaged in the unauthorized practice of law. The legislature and the attorneys explain that filing liens is not as simple as it seems and that the things that need to be considered or that could go wrong really require the process to be supervised by a licensed attorney. We've even heard it said that individuals who represent themselves have a "fool for a client."

Should a CAM be able to handle this type of legal process?

What do you think?

No thoughts or comments at all? And I thought when women got into the mainstream of politics, etc that things were going to "change"? Yeah, right.

Can none of those who pull your strings assist you in answering my lies and misstatements; not even one big-time politician, lawyer or even an 'honorable' judge?! How about one of the judges who hold 'Judge Judy' procedings? At best you are all a bunch of clowns with a bit of cowardice thrown in.

There is some credibility to your "fool for a client" statement. I got 'burnt' once but my foolishness was not in law it was in my arrogance and big yap.

On the other hand, since then I have found it much more rewarding to do my own legal work as lawyers are by 'law'; "officers of the court". That means they CANNOT pursue matters other than what they are TOLD they can pursue. I have no such restriction. Any thoughts?
